First Request for Tender for the Catena-X Core Services

With our Release 2.0 and upcoming Release 3.0, we are now able to prepare and take the last step towards a fully operational data space.

Therefore, we are looking for an experienced partner to operate the core services that are only offered once in the Catena-X data space (see core services section B).

We are looking for a partner who is fully dedicated to...

  • federated and de-centralized data ecosystems
  • data space initiatives such as IDSA or Gaia-X
  • open source down to its core and multi-vendor approaches
  • holistic industry approaches and entire value chain coverage
  • boost data readiness along the entire automotive value chain, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.

We are looking for a partner who is experienced in…

  • identity management, business partner data management and digital twin technologies
  • industrial development and operation of software components including release management
  • offering customer and technical support especially in interaction with further operators and vendors.

There will be two phases:

  • Application phase: Get in touch with us and send us a short company presentation with your contact details (max. 5 pages) and how you fit our requirements (1 page) by January 27, 2023 at the latest to info[@]catena-[x.]net, so that we can consider you in our imminent tender. If you are interested in becoming a partner for core services of section A as well, please let us know.
  • Submission phase: We will send the Request for Tender (RfT) document to selected partners in the first half of February.
